Two women were driving down a road in Bali, when one of them spotted a dog crouched over in a little doghouse in front of an empty villa. They immediately stopped to check on the dog, and realized how bad of shape she was in once they got closer. She looked malnourished and was missing the majority of her hair due to scabies, which caused her skin to become very scaly and painful.
They gave her food and water and had to be very gentle so that she wouldn’t get spooked and run into nearby traffic. They spent the next hour gaining her trust before they were able to grab her. To their surprise, the pup was very calm once they lifted her up. It’s like she knew she was finally safe and that these women were there to help her.
They brought her to the vet, where it was confirmed that she had scabies, and also an eye infection, which was thankfully easy to treat. After that, they brought her home so they could care for her in a comfortable environment while she healed both physically and mentally. They decided to name this sweet girl Lucy. Lucy’s life before now is a mystery, but one thing is for sure – the days and years that would follow will finally be everything she deserves and more.
During her recovery, she had many “firsts,” including visiting the beach and walking on grass. Lucy broke out of her shell and became very friendly and affectionate. She loves cuddles and enjoys playing with other dogs. A month later, Lucy finally found a forever home with a loving couple named Matt and Brianna from Washington D.C.
“I think given everything that she’s been through, the fact that she’s so sweet and so loving and trusting of us is just miraculous,” Brianna told The Dodo.
Lucy settled into her new home very quickly and bonded immediately with her new parents. She is living the life and is spoiled every single day. Her transformation is absolutely incredible. Watch for yourself in the video below, and click here to follow her adventures on Instagram.
